TJ Washburn

In this world of seemingly constant flash and bang...Florida singer-songwriter TJ Washburn is just trying to tell the truth."
A professional actor since adolescence, TJ Washburn followed the tracks of his peers out his childhood home in rural North Florida and into the crucible of New York City. It was in there that he slept on couches, played music for wealthy children, moved to Union City, lingered in diner booths, studied and performed improvised comedy, read books, began to write with a new sense of purpose and clarity, got married, and ultimately drove back down the east coast of America to live for a time in Orlando. He now returns to his former home to play his songs and tell his stories for the first time in more than a year.

Sophie Buskin and Kirsten Maxwell

Sophie Buskin grew up surrounded by music in the heart of New York City. Though she’s been in the jingle studio since age 4, she has just begun her songwriting and performing journey within the past few years. When she’s not performing on her own, she plays with her father, David Buskin, in a duo mysteriously called BUSKIN. She is currently working on her first solo album which is expected out in November 2018.

“... Kirsten Maxwell’s clear soprano rings out in a way that would make Judy Collins and Joan Baez approve. She backs that up with skillful guitar playing and a growing collection of well-crafted songs. It’s exciting to imagine what the future holds for her.  ”

— John Platt, "Sunday Supper" WFUV

Kirsten Maxwell is a Long Island based singer/songwriter. She started writing songs in High School and performing regularly at open mics and small gigs in College. Since then, Kirsten has committed to a life of music full-time. Without the help of label, agent, or manager, she has toured extensively in the U.S., released one album and recorded an EP, won a number of songwriting competitions and performed at festivals on the East Coast and in Texas. Her grassroots following doubled in the past year and the expected release of her new self-titled EP has her fans on the edge of their seats. In December, Kirsten opened for rock icon Melissa Etheridge. She has also shared stages with Bill Staines, Michael Johnson, Slaid Cleaves, Vance Gilbert, and Nicole Atkins.

Violet

ATMOSPHERIC FOLK-ROCK

Violet is Meredith Minogue (singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist) and Jim Barry (songwriter/lead-guitarist/multi- instrumentalist). Their sound draws from rock and roll, folk-rock, 70’s singer-songwriters, new wave, country-blues and dream pop. It’s a bit like Buffalo Springfield, Tim Buckley and Gary Numan having a drink with the Pretenders while staring at a Marc Chagall painting.

Over the years, the band has played as an acoustic duo and with a full band at the CMJ Festival, Webster Hall, Knitting Factory, The Hamilton Park Concert Series, Pershing Circle Concert Series, Weehawken Day, Pete's Candy Store, Bowery Electric, and Warsaw. They hold an artist in residence at Espresso 77 in Jackson Heights, where they have developed a local following.

The Royal Arctic Institute: An instrumental trio playing an eclectic mix of post-punk, cinematic, orchestrated jazz. Having their music dubbed as “post-everything."

Sean Kiely isn’t a busker, but he makes the kind of music that can fit into tight corners. In so doing, he’s carrying on the Jersey City tradition of flexible, exploratory, quasi-psychedelic folk-rock
